Cappa popped up on our radar just this morning, with her new single “In The Morning”. The Philly native’s ethereal vocal stylings layered over moody downtempo beats quickly evoke comparisons to names like Purity Ring and Banks. Keep an eye on this broody songstress as her EP drops May 2015.
Bad Wave is the Los Angeles-based duo of Tucker Tota and Patrick Hart. Discovered by Ghost Beach, they combine classically indie vocals with by moody, swirling production.
